Cint is still at the shelter....I called the shelter this evening 5/13 at 9:30 est and he is still there. PLease if anyone knows someone who can take this old guy.

Impound: A942039 North Central phone:(213)485-8855 or 5767
When Krista told me that this sweet senior was redlisted and was due to be euth at any moment [I can't bring myself to look at the redlist] it broke my heart.

So I decided to take Cint out for a "last walk" so that the last memory he had before euth was not of the concrete walls of his cage, the sight of indifferent people walking past him as though he were invisible.....

Oh how different it must have been when he was younger... this stunning, amazingly beautiful white Shepherd, what a sight he must have been in his day. But his day has come and gone. Now he stands, abandoned by all those he was so devoted to, his coat dirty and unbrushed, his eyes not as clear as they once were, his bones not as strong.

But his nobel heart and heritage are the same, his love and devotion is just as strong, his desire to obey and to please, that trait, so heartbreaking to see in abandoned Shepherds, of everlasting loyalty and honor.

He melted with joy when we took him out and Krista stroked his head gently. But too quickly we had to take him back to his cage and leave him, perhaps the last time we will ever see his face again.

I would say he is "red listed" meaning on the list to die...because of his age, condition and the fact that there are like a gazillion other dogs at this shelter....

(btw-I did see other gsd's on their list)

You weren't kidding, I just went to their website and there are a TON of dogs. Sadly many are older dogs. My offer still stands for help with transport here in Northern CA.

Ya know how sometimes some people try to make you feel like you are crazy for saying there are too many good animals for too few good homes? This is one of those shelters that makes me feel less crazy, but much, much more sad. There are lots of those.

I read this in a crosspost. I hope one of them works out! Please continue to keep an eye on him!

There are currently (2) holds from rescues on him. Also Mrs. Trejo has been contacted, and is watching him as well.

OK, everyone, calm down! There is a rescue in Illinois who might takehim, but are not sure about transport. Otherwise, WHITE PAWS has a volunteer who just happens to be flying to LA, CA and who also has a friend here who will pay for Clint's fee with the airline to come back to WI. We have a lot of senior-friendly volunteers and we are all concerned about this guy. Keep your paws crossed that everything works out and thanks to VANESSA for making it happen!

Ok, fingers and paws are all crossed. If anything were to go wrong I could drive as far south as Bakersfield which is at least 350 miles from me and then transport anywhere in Northern California all the way up to the Oregon boarder. That covers most of California. Please PM if my help is needed.
